Tubac Jack's, one of the oldest restaurants in Tubac, has an eclectic menu of BBQ, Mexican, and worldwide favorites such as steaks, salmon, salads, burgers, pulled pork and, of course, our world famous green chili stew. Jack's has a huge patio to enjoy those beautiful southern arizona days and evenings, as well as a full dining room and bar suited for any size party.

Great place to eat and listen to music

Food was good and the vibe fun. We went to listen to the band Southbound Pilot and the outside patio was packed. The service was good too. I wouldn't order the Smore's pizza again. It wasn't as good as it sounded on the menu.

Tried Jack's twice to give them a chance will not go for a third time. Better off finding somewhere else to eat in Tubac.

Loved the entertainer Johnny Bencomo on Friday night. It's the reason we came in and the reason we went for a second visit. What we didn't like is the kitchen grill smoke is so thick in the restaurant that in both cases my eyes were blood red and my eyelids swelled up. If you have asthma, I strongly suggest not... More

Tubac Jack's is a favorite that we visit on all of our stays in Tubac. Their signature dish is a homemade Green chili pork stew. The word delicious doesn't do it justice. The meat is tender and smoked on site, and they only use the best green chili's (e.g. like Hatch from NM). If your travels take you to Tubac,... More

We liked this restaurant so much we came back a second and third time. Tubac is a quaint artist town that you can easily spend a few hours wandering the shops and galleries. While there we discovered Tubac Jacks Restaurant and Saloon. We sat in the outdoor patio for two lunches - great burgers and pulled pork sandwich. For dinner... More

I met friends for lunch today. Very friendly greeters and the waitress was super good. She had good timing and a wonderful western accent. Food fast and tasty. Take some time and read all the historical information on the walls.

We (wife and myself) had a late lunch at Tubac Jack's and it was very tasty and enjoyable. Tubac has got to be one of the largest tourist traps in the West but, it's fun to just wonder around it's three (3) main streets and look at all the art, junk and restaurants. Jack's was recommended to us by the... More

We went here so many times during our trip, that our super nice waitress, Nancy, knew us by name... They're not kidding when they say "Masterful Margaritas"..Also nice cold beers. Chips & Guacamole were great, so was the Pulled pork sandwich w/slaw, and the killer cheeseburgers...All your fav southwest bar food is there. We sat out at an umbrella table... More

Fun bar in downtown Tubac. Sat at the bar and enjoyed a few cold beers and great live entertainment. The jalapeño poppers were a perfect complement.
